Health Information Literacy Partnership with Oregon PAs

The Project

The OHSU Library received a funding award from the National Network of Libraries of Medicine / Pacific Northwest Region for developing the project "Health Information Literacy Partnership with Oregon PAs". This project, scheduled for September 2010-April 2011, is designed for Oregon PAs and their fellow health care teams to learn more about online information tools that would be helpful in a clinical setting, as well as learning more about patient education materials they can use with their patients.

Training sessions on PubMed, MedlinePlus, other National Library of Medicine resources, and other resources available to Oregon licensed health professionals through the OHSU Library, will be held from January 2011-April 2011, including a CME session at the 2011 Oregon Spring Medical Update for Physician Assistants.
